Rangers continue to build that 2012 roster
i like what the rangers are doing they’re all one year deals and they’re going to be shit anyways
maybe they’ll get lucky and one will be good/not fall apart
Said that last year too, nobody wants that awful contract
You just want to post the potential trade rumors if that happens, be honest.
Last year he had another year left on his deal. This year, he'll be on an expiring deal.
heard the phillies want choo
not a fan. I fear change
I will still be calling it the DL
tad has it figured out. i mean where does the madness end?!?!?
He’s not wrong
I'm still wondering what scouts saw to pick that kid high.
Stumbled upon this article on the SABR awards nominations. A good read on what could have been a turning point in stadium architecture. Imagine that, Jerry Reinsdorf chose poorly.
The White Sox ballpark in Chicago that never was and could have changed history
Cliffs, an architect wanted to take parks back to the days of Wrigley, Fenway, Yankee stadium where they were integrated into the neighborhood. Instead White Sox brought suburban model to the city and did more harm to the neighborhood.
once in a while i think br might not be as bad as it used to be, then i see some shit like this
I didn't realize it's been 11 years since someone reached 3,000 K's. CC is 14 away.
that White Sox article was a great read
the line about Fenway and Wrigley being constrained hit on why I love urban colleges so much. You feel like you're in a little sanctuary away from the buzz of the city that is just steps away
Tell those two guys up top to sign a damn contract. The rest of the guys will get signed once those two finalize a deal.
Boohoo, how will we ever live on 20 million plus dollars a year.... The owners are killing our livelihood. Do you even realize how stupid that shit sounds?
Its you that needs to shut the fuck up.
I see no lies
Yeah, that's a no, nobody else wants to hear from a shill for the billionaires hoarding revenues in this thread. Fuck the owners and their bullshit attempts at crying poverty, fuck the wealthy
it doesnt matter how feverishly you lick the boots of billionaires you and you, none of them would piss on you if you were on fire
I'm not sympathetic to either side. The players have absolutely no right to Bitch. No pro athlete does. No one who makes more money then god gets to bitch.
I guess I don't understand being sympathetic to either side. Do the owners have more than enough money? Yeah, no shit, but the players are more than fairly compensated for what they do, too.
You and You still with the worst sports takes on tmb
Shame on the players for wanting their fair share!!!
And exactly how much money does God make?
there are like 20 "you" username derivatives but unless i am mixing them up, his racial and social views are fairly frightening as well iirc
I guess I just don't get feeling bad about millionaires not making ENOUGH money.
And the players wouldnt either...
I'm all for employee of every company getting their fair share. If that's the gas station attendant running a multi-million dollar store for $8 an hour or a baseball player making a couple million while the owner makes billions. I think owners of all businesses should share the profits they make off the work of their employees.
Yeah, I'm ok with saying professional athletes make plenty of money.
There isn't even a comparison to be made between athletes and people working menial day jobs.
There are (many) minor league baseball players that would disagree.
That's a whole different story. Most minor leaguers are living off what many on here wouldn't consider liveable wages.
Does it make me anti labor if I never want my team to give out an Albert Pujols contract?
It means you are sane.
Sure there is. All employees are equal to an equal share of the revenue they produce. MLB players producing billions of revenue doesn't mean they shouldn't get a fair cut of what they produce.
well yeah but there is a massive difference in offering that kind of deal to a 32 year old through his 42 year old season and giving it to a 26 year old through his 36 year old season
They make enough money.
If the money is guaranteed, no one should get that many years. Too much can happen in ten years that could effect a players performance.
shut the fuck up
imagine being on the side of owners who are making billions off of the players ruining their bodies for them
"paying college athletes for making the universities hundreds of millions would be the worst crime of all"
Lol at me being on the side of owners because millionaires aren't even more well compensated than they are.
You know you're in the minority amongst most people when it comes to this right?
What's enough? Who gets to decide this?
If athletes are only allowed to make X amount of dollars before they need to "shut up", what about owners? Where should they be drawing the line? Who gets to decide when people aren't allowed to ask for any more money? Does this apply to your job? Your CEO?
Fuck off, athletes drive billions in profits for owners, networks, etc, they ought to be getting a LOT if there was any actual justice in the balance. Most of the owners did nothing to build to league and revenue, just bought in and cash out
you know you’re in the majority with all of the simpletons that say stupid shit like “shut up and play the damn game!” “i’m not watching the game if someone knees” “so what if she’s my cousin, i love her!” right?
Nope. Super nope
I hope you go to bat just as hard for people who are actually underpaid as hard as you and some in this thread do for millionaires.
Simpletons... Let your true colors show WTX. You couldn't be more of an idiot if you tried when it comes to this issue.
